Signs of Skin Cancer Pictures - 48 Photos & Images
Skin cancers may look like:
A spot or sore that does not heal within 4 weeks
A spot or sore that itches, hurts, is scabbed or crusty, or bleeds for more than 4 weeks
Areas where the skin has broken down (an ulcer) and doesn't heal within 4 weeks, and you can't think of a reason for this change
An ulcer is an area that is breaking down and begins to get deeper. This can be called erosion.
Basal cell skin cancers look like a small, slow growing, shiny, pink or red lump. They can also look like red scaly patches. If left, basal cell skin cancers tend to become crusty, bleed, or develop into an ulcer. They are commonest on the face, scalp, ears, hands, shoulders and back.
Squamous cell skin cancers are usually pink lumps. They may have hard or scaly skin on the surface. They are often tender, but not always. They can bleed easily and develop into an ulcer. They are commonest on the face, neck, lips, ears, hands, shoulders, arms and legs.
